Yesterday I was watching a streaming movie and with 3 minutes left the Sony 5100 BD player locked up.  First time I've seen this happen.  Don't know if it was the player or the feed, but I couldn't even shut the player off with the remote.  I ended up pulling the cord and starting the movie all over again when I plugged the player back in.  Not quite sure what happened.  Anybody seen this before?

My guess is the player simply locked up, I don't have a Sony Blu-ray but I have a 2010 model Samsung Blu-ray that locks up frequently (requiring power cord reset) when using NF.

Looks like it happens with your model Blu-ray at times: http://www.avsforum....0#post_23629768

Thanx, I thought it might have been a glitch by NF.  As long as I know it's common to the BD player, I can live with it.

Why just "live with it"? Get Roku and enjoy all the features of top-notch streaming video plus all the extra channels.

Nick, I've posted many times that I don't like the Rokus.  It's just a matter of personal choice.

the point is Roku's boxes handle easy and nice all glitches (actually stream's corruption - dropped packets, etc) as they have local 'connection' between two companies here, residing just a couple miles apart ;)

 

third party players like LG, Samsung, Sony are to big and heavy to follow fast changing technology
